This is a curious statement, which, if true, shows how different things are
in different parts of the country. For my employer, the City of Los Angeles,
we frequently hire an independant construction management firm. In fact, the
job I'm on now has one of the best: Bechtel. However, in all cases of RFI's,
clarifications, or any question of design change, all answers are from the
engineer and architect of record. After all, they carry the liability.
